ICLEI Europe, in cooperation with the EVERYWH2ERE project, is organising a city-oriented workshop on “Upscaling Hydrogen Genets in European Cities”. The event will highlight modern Fuel Cell and Hydrogen (FCH) technologies as clean alternatives to fossil fuel generators in providing energy for construction sites, festivals and other temporary urban events.

The workshop is taking place back-to-back with the 9th General Assembly of the Regions & Cities initiative of the European Union’s Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Join Undertaking (FCH JU). With European cities driving the decarbonisation of transport, urban heating and cooling, industries and services forward, the workshop will focus on how FCH technologies as a 100% clean alternative to diesel-based generator equipment can support cities in reaching their climate and energy targets, reduce emissions and noise and increase air quality.

This workshop will offer:

  • an understanding of how hydrogen gensets can be a viable alternative to diesel generators
  • a platform to exchange on the necessary regulatory frameworks for deploying temporary hydrogen gensets in city areas
  • the opportunity to speak about and promote own innovative decarbonisation measures

The workshop will also serve as an entry point for becoming part of the EVERYWH2ERE Cities Interest Group to explore options for hosting hydrogen generator sets and to profit from tools and long-term recommendations generated throughout the project.
